Company Profile

Company Profile

The core business of the company is the supply of building material and hardware to a wide range of customers. It supplied several emerging contractors with building material in a number of multimillion low cost housing projects, while it also became the preferred local supplier of large national and provincial contractors doing projects in the Eastern Free State. This became possible due to the company striving to be more than just a supplier but rather be a supporting “partner”.
Its ability to supply almost a full range of quality building materials at competitive prices coupled to excellent service through its substantial business infrastructure resulted in Hardware Mecca becoming a one stop supply shop for the small, medium and large contractor.
The current management is working towards growth of the company in the Eastern Free State and adjacent areas by expanding the range of products and the customer base.
It has already established a fully operational cement brick manufacturing plant with a manufacturing capacity of more than 120 000 stock bricks per day.
